Two Things That Northerners May No Longer Enjoy If Power Shifts Back To The South
There are two different things that the people in the northern part of the country will not be enjoying again if the power goes back to the southern part of the country. All governors in the southern part of the country have already agreed to produce the next president of the country in the upcoming presidential election. The southerners are serious about it and there are some actions towards it already.
The first indication is that the opposition party has recently zoned its chairmanship position to the northern part of the country. If the national chairman of the party comes from the north, the south will likely produce the presidential candidate of the party. It is now becoming clear that the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will come from the southern part of the country. On the ruling party’s side, the members of the party have been projecting Mr Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to be the flag bearer of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
If things are going on like this, the southeasterners will produce the next president of the country. President Muhammadu Buhari who is a northerner has been the one ruling for the past six years and there are tendencies some things will change if the power goes back to the south in the year twenty twenty-three presidential election. There are things that the northerners have been enjoying now that may no longer be available in the year 2023.
1. Open Grazing
Some northerners that are herders believe in taking their cattle to different places to feed them. They believe that cattle that are moving from place to place will grow rapidly than the ones that are rared at a spot. While this is well with the northerners, some southerners have kicked against the open grazing system because some of the herdsmen are unknowingly trampling on their farmlands.
Some southern governors have suggested cattle ranching for the northerners, but it is not effective on the northerners’ end. If the power goes back to the southern part of the country. Southern leaders may ban open grazing and this will affect the northerners a lot.
2. Regional Politics
Now that the power is still in the northern part of the country, most of the people under the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari are from the northern part of the country. Although some people think that the presidency is free to choose his ministers from any region he likes, but most of the posts and positions have been going to the northern part of the country. If power shifts back to the northern part of the country, northerners may not enjoy this benefit again.
